Golden pour with a huge white head. Slight lacing.
Aromas of dough, yeast, citrus (mostly lemon) hint of cloves.
Tasty sweet, molasses, lemon, pineapple, cloves.
Crisp, clean, slighty bitter.
Totally fabulous Wiessenbier. Try it, you'll like it!

Big wheat and coriander in aroma, with orange and a touch of bubblegum. There's a slight metallic character. Flavor is citrus dominant, with lemon and orange peel underlying a bready, wheat malt backbone. Coriander rounds out the finish. Perhaps more bready than most and not as characterful of yeast esters, but a solid offering. Light metallic notes emerge in flavor, which is the only detracting factor.

look: 3 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.25

4.7% ABV per the label.

Pours a murky light yellow-orange with a foamy bone head that settles to wisps of film on top of the beer. No lacing on the drink down. Tiny chunks of sediment are seen floating around in the beer after the pour. Smell is of wheat, caramel, and fruit aromas. Taste is much the same with wheat, caramel, and slightly tart pineapple flavors on the finish. There is a mild amount of earth bitterness on the palate with each sip. This beer has a good level of carbonation with a crisp and dry mouthfeel. Overall, this is an above average beer with an interesting tart pineapple flavor that I wasn't expecting.

Serving type: bottle.

Moosbacher Weissbier
.5l flip-top cap brown bottle, no apparent freshness dating.
$3.79 @ Total Wine & More, Cherry Hill, NJ

Apparently a bad bottle, it opened with no crack, nor even a hiss. As I poured it no head built, regardless of how high I held the bottle or how I shook it up. What a disappointment. The paper strip over the metal enclosure was sealed, so it hadn't been tampered with. It poured crystal-clear, revealing a seriously sedimented yeast cake at the bottom of the bottle. I blame Total Wine & More for this, not the brewery.

Appearance: crystal-clear golden body until the yeast sediment was disturbed - I feel this is probably just a very old bottle. No head, but again, I can't fault the brewery without a better idea of what's happened.

Smell: Yeasty after the pour. Hay-like, spice, and yeast prior. Again, probably just well beyond its "best by" date. Some spicy and floral hops have survived however.

Taste: Grainy malt. Wheat. Some phenol; light touch of vanilla and banana.

Mouthfeel: Obviously I can't review the mouthfeel based on my sample. There is some carbonation but it's only about 2.1 volumes of C02 where it needs to be closer to 3.0.

Overall: Hard to tell. Based on what I have I find it balanced. I'd imagine that the spiciness of a fresh bottle would be refreshing. I'm going to seek a new bottle to do an update.

Poured into a Celebrator pokal. Pours a cloudy golden amber with a fine, two finger white head with great retention and thick lacing. Classic hefeweizen aroma of wheat, clove, light lemon citrus and hint of banana. Flavor follows, with slightly sweet wheat, clove, light lemon and bit of banana, finishing with a little drier wheat and residual spicing. Light bodied with nice active carbonation. A nicely made, classic hefeweizen, a bit blander than some of the other classics in this style, but well balanced and pleasant to drink. I would defiinitely buy this again. I liked it a lot better than the schwarze version from this brewery.

Not a very interesting hefeweizen here. Smell and taste of wheat and yeast without the lemon, orange, coriander, spice that I enjoy in most hefeweizen. Flavors overall are faint, and the beer is overall quite forgettable although certainly not bad. Mouthfeel is somewhat creamy for the style with fairly low carbonation. While I respect the beer for what it is (it comes from Bavaria and uses only water, barley, wheat, hops, and yeast) I wasn't able to pick up on the complexity that I was hoping to find. Maybe I'm missing something, but it just didn't do that much for me.

Two previous Moosbachers (Pilsener & Schwarze Weisse) were rather disappointing. This beer pours murky amber with very stable off-white head. Smell is a bit weak, but clear, citruses, banana, yeasts. Taste is spicy owing to clove, citrusy with yeasty aftertaste, medium body, good carbonation, normal hefeweizen.

I enjoyed this beer while stationed in Germany during 1969 to 1970. With a shot of White or Red Corn, you couldn't ask for a better combination. And with a plate of knockwurst or bratwurst with a side order of Pommes Frites . It was the perfect meal.

Pours a cloudy blonde with a two-finger head into my glass. Very good presentation. Authentic.

Clove, citrus and wheat aromas in the nose. Very inviting to the nose.

Light with wheat and clove flavors. Seems a little "off" but otherwise, this is as authentic as it can get.

Clove, clove and clove. Nothing much more that lingers.

Would probably taste better fresh. Gotta know when to pick 'em. I waited too long.

Served in a Bruery snifter.

Got this as a sample, figured I'd give this brewery a shot./ It pours a lightly hazy golden straw topped by over a finger of white foam. The nose comprises wheat, very light coriander, and light light orange zest. The taste brings in more of the same, but is also cursed by a strong must on both the wheat and the orange, leaving a strongly bitter and unpleasant flavor on the tongue. The body is a light medium, with a light moderate carbonation and a fairly smooth feel. Overall, a weak hefe, indeed, one that couldn't come close to the better German examples.

Served the bottle into my Weizen glass. Love the bottle design with the hard cap.

A: golden cloudy color with a three finger head that faded quickly. Hardly any lacing.

S: wheat, cloves, some citrus, lemon present on the nose. It's not strong but nice enough to enjoy it while you sip the beer.

T: taste is very crisp and solid. Wheat is predominant, citrus, yeast and slight hints of banana.

M: feels lighter than most German Hefes. Carbonation was right and helps in the smoothness of the beer. Very drinkable.

O: I was surprised at how good this beer was. Highly recommended to those who enjoy American Wheat Ales since this is a very drinkable Hefe and more on the light side. Will definitely come back for more of this.

look: 3.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 2 | feel: 3 | overall: 2.5

Pours a slightly hazy dark golden yellow color with a MASSIVE frothy white head that takes forever to slowly fade into a lasting ring. Large chunks of soapy lacing left behind.

Slightly spicy and earthy aroma with hints of light fruit, citrus and bready yeast. Grassy hops compliment the zesty spices(pepper, clove) up front followed by the yeast character and some lemon peel. All of these notes are here but are slightly muted. Subtle alcohol and light fruit.

Medium bodied with lots of tight carbonation up front. The bread/yeast character is most prominent with hints of zesty spice, light fruit and citrus. Faint earthy hops up front are complimented by hints of pepper, clove and lemon zest. Kind of watered down and bland with everything just melding together and nothing standing out.

look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 3 | feel: 3 | overall: 3

A: Pours a hazy deep amber. Botched the pour resulting in way too much head. Head retention rather low, pretty much no lacing.

S: Strong fruity notes of orange, unusually fragrant for the style.

T: Very sweet with fairly low attenuation. Strong orange, no banana or clove apparent. This Hefeweizen is a bit one dimensional for my taste.

M: Pretty heavy body and sweetness is only partially offset by the orange flavored acidity. Overall I'm not in the mood for another, pretty low drinkability.

Overall while true to style, this is a bit of a simplistic and one dimensional rendition.

look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5

A: A feverish uprising of effervesce is seen within the cloudy vibrant orange body. The head is rocky, off white but holds strong with a sheen like gloss above the rim.

S: The nose is strong wheat (duh) with dry bananas and dry orange peels. Nice, subtle spiciness of cloves come on the close. Fairly strong on the open it does soften somewhat rather quickly.

T: Crisp upfront, slightly fruity with dry oranges and wheat. The hopping is fresh, wet, and of the noble variety. Nice bite of slightly sour oranges and dry wheat grace the finish.

M: The mouthful is crisp and tight with a bubbly feel. Creamy and luscious with a wheat texture and a final fade of cloves and oranges.

D: Crisp drink, good for the summertime, worthy repeat.

A: The beer is hazy golden yellow in color and has a very high amount of carbonation; some yeast particles are visible near the bottom of the glass. It poured into a weizen glass with a three finger high head that has excellent retention properties.
S: There are aromas of apples and bananas along with some hints of clove in the nose.
T: Like the smell, the taste is quite fruity and has a mild amount of sweetness. There are flavors of apples and wheat along with notes of yeast.
M: It feels light-bodied on the palate and has a high amount of carbonation.
D: The beer is very easy to drink and refreshing although there isn't much complexity in the taste.

Poured from a 500ml bottle into a wizen glass.

Pours a nice hazy yellowish color wih a huge head that heaves nice lacing. Smells faintly of bananas and bubblegum. Has a touch of clove. The flavor is nice with a good lemon presence and nice wheat character. Mouthfeel is nice as it s actually not over carbonated despite the large head formed. Drinkability is high as this is really smooth and tasty. Not overly complex but easy to go down. Worth a shot but not the best out there.

Thanks to bu11zeye for sharing this bottle.

The beer pours a hazy yellow color with a huge white head. The aroma is wheat with a lot of orange citrus notes. I don't get banana and clove like I expected. The flavor is strong wheat with hints of lemon, toffee and orange. I didn't get the traditional hefeweizen notes in the flavor, but it was still pretty good. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation.

Poured from a 500 ml. plastic corked bottle with the metal lock with an expiration date of August 2010. Sampled on May 23, 2010. The cork made quite the pop and foamy fizz when I opened it. It poured pale yellow with about three inches of puffy, foamy off-white head that took several minutes to diminish. The wheat is the most powerful sensation in the aroma along with a nice balance of barley and yeast. It is of lighter texture but not watery thin. It has a nice creaminess to it. The wheat and barley taste is rather mild and easy to drink when all is said and done.

Thanks to my coworker, Mike, for getting me a bottle.

A - Poured from a 500 mL bottle into my hefeweizen glass. Pours a hazy orangish-yellow color with lots of carbonation bubbles rising on the side. It also pours with a ton of head that lingers for quite a while, and leaves lots of lacing on the glass. There are a few floaties in there.

S - Lots of wheat and lemon. It's not very diverse, but it's strong, and good. Kind of reminds me of a warm summer's day.

T - The wheat is the dominant flavor in this beer. There are hints of light citrus, and belgian yeast, but for the most part, it's all wheat all the time.

M - Well carbonated, crisp, and refreshing.

D - It's generally not my favorite style of beer, but I could drink more of this.

A: Orange amber color; cloudy with floaters. Poured a 2 finger white merangue head with excellent retention. Decanted continually. Inconsistent light lacing.

S: Very muted clove and banana. Bready wheat malt and citrus.

T: Wheat malt, light fruit and spices. Crisp and refreshing.

M: Light body. Ample carbonation. Crisp and refreshing in an evenly bitter finish.

D: Very drinkable. Solid hefeweizen.

500ml flip top bottle. No sign of a best by date.

It pours into my Weizen glass a murky peach color with a huge billowing white head that leaves some nice lacing.

The smell is quintessential Bavarian hefe with great balance between lemon, wheat, and clove. The banana is there but not as much.

The lemon comes out big time in the taste, it is a tangy, wheaty hefeweizen. The mouthfeel is a bit watery, it is the low point of the beer. It is extremely drinkable though. Skip the american pale wheat beers and go for this on a hot summers day.

A: Poured from a bottle to a weizen glass. Had a brownish-yellow color and a thick, cloudy consistency. Lots of floaties. There was an inch and a half of foamy, fairly long-lasting head. Not much lacing at all.

S: A sharp, slightly acrid smell of wheat, hops and malt.

T: Tasted of hops, wheat, malt, and that bubble gum quality common in hefeweizens. A bit on the thin side, but OK.

M: A highly carbonated beer with a dry finish. Light-bodied.

D: A drinkable, if somewhat above average hefeweizen.

Appearance: Clear honey color and bright white head of one-half finger. There's good lacing and a fine stream of bubbles. Overall, a handsome beer.

Smell: This isn't an aromatic brew, but it does smell nice. There are nice esters of yeast and banana. This beer also smells of lemon.

Tatse: As with the smell, I was hoping for more from this beer. In short, flavor is lacking in this beer. It's tastes fine, I was just looking for more yeast and malt flavors. You can expect weak malt, yeast, and lemon flavors.

Mouthfeel: Good for style.

Drinkability: This is a good beer. Give it a try, just don't expect an A beer.
